NYS suspect Josephine Kabura has made shocking revelations of how she registered 20 companies to do business with the institution.
Appearing before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) for the first time, Kabura said she was introduced to NYS by former CS Ann Waiguru in April 2012.
She told the MPs that initially she had five companies but registered the rest to increase her chances of getting business from government.
“ I was the sole proprietor of 20 companies which transacted business with the NYS” said Kabura.
It also emerged that she clinched the businesses without tendering as is required by the law.
According to a report by the Auditor General Edward Ouko, Kabura was allegedly the biggest beneficiary of the alleged scandal having received Sh1.299 billion on account of 11 businesses.
Parliament had issued summons for Kabura believed to be a key suspect after she failed to appear before the PAC.
Kabura last week on Tuesday failed to appear before the parliamentary team to shed light on transactions involving companies associated with her.
Parliament then asked IG Joseph Boinnet to get information on her whereabouts and compel her to appear before the committee which she did today.
